From John Lubbock 4 September 1863

4 September 1863
My dear Mr. Darwin
It is an age since I have heard of or seen you. Is it any use asking whether you will come & see us in any way? Either (which you know we should like best) staying a few days with us, or coming to dine or lunch?1 or if you cannot do any of these are you well enough to see me? I know you will not hesitate to say so if you do not feel up to it.
I am just back from a trip to Norway, Sweden, & Denmark, which we have enjoyed very much.2 Have you heard that they have made me President of the Ethnological Society? are you a member, if not I wish you would think of it.3
But I will not attempt to tell you the news as I shall hope to see you before long.
With my kind regards to Mrs Darwin believe me, dear Mr Darwin, | Yours affectly | John Lubbock
Has returned from trip to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
